As a service plumber, I start my day by checking my schedule for any emergency calls. Then, depending on the situation, I may need to head out immediately or take some time to prepare before heading out. Once I am ready, I will gather all the necessary tools and materials for the job.
When I arrive at the customer’s home, my priority is to assess the problem and make sure that it is safe and that there are no potential hazards present. After that, I can begin fixing whatever plumbing issue they are having.
This could involve replacing pipes, unclogging drains, repairing faucets or toilets, or any other repairs needed.
Once the repair is complete, I must clean up the area and dispose of any old parts. Then, I can walk the customer through everything that was done and answer any questions they may have. Finally, I will write an invoice for my services so the customer can pay me for my work with my plumbing service.
After wrapping up with a customer, I spend time preparing for my next job or heading back to base. This could include organizing tools, entering information into my computer system, or checking in with my supervisor before finishing the work day.
No two days as a service plumber are alike – each job is unique and requires different levels of attention and skill. I need to be prepared for whatever comes my way and stay flexible.
